    Hey,

    So, Infinite Mac doesn't have the user base to help me with this in the time given, and I'm not asking for a distrobution or providing links. I'm sorry if this isn't supposed to be talked about here...

    Anyway, I got a Toshiba Satellite L500-02H. I've downloaded SnowOSX Universal V3.5 and burnt it to a bootable ISO. I've got a couple questions!

    1) Can anyone help me find all the KEXTS I need? I want everything fully working.
    2) Will dial-up work? It's my main internet connection, however I got another PC if it doesn't.
    3) Will my Web-Cam work with Photo-Booth and iChat and all that?
    4) Will my microphone work?
    5) If I wanted to get rid of it, and move back to Windows 7, could I just pop in my recovery DVD's and go back to normal?

    Thanks guys!

    Hackint0sh is illegal. Look up the Psystar lawsuit case.

    Hackintoshing is illegal if you don't own the OS, and or have it on an Apple branded machine and the OP can easily slap a Apple Sticker on it and be fine.

    I got stickers, and planned on replacing the casing with Apple casing... Making it pretty much legit. How would they catch me anyway? Exactly.. They're not going to raid my house and check my OS.

    Lol, I'd laugh if I turned on the news and saw a bunch of SWAT dudes with an Apple insignia going around kicking down the doors of suspected Hackintoshers

    as with most hackintoshes, you might not be able to get everything working, unless you know and want to dedicate the time to making drivers. Whats wrong with win 7 I have ultimate 64bit and I love it.

    How much would the new casing cost? If its as much as a laptop would be, I would look around at laptops that run well with OSX with all components working.
